The New Adirondack Kitchen
The kitchen at our home on Fourth Lake is small but very efficient. Everything is in reach of the chef in this U-shaped layout. The cabinetry was custom made in solid cherry by Backwoods Fine Woodworking in Old Forge. Backwoods does everything from design to installation and maintenance. Their work is excellent and they are very reliable. The floor is oak, as it is throughout the house. Our cherry cabinets have darkened substantially since they were installed, having developed the most beautiful patina. The appliances are mainly from Kitchen Aid's Architect Series. The sink is by Franke, in stainless steel, with a Groehe faucet. Each of the three windows has views of Fourth Lake. Simple, efficient and timeless in look and feel, this is a comfortable and high quality kitchen in keeping with the arts and crafts style of the home. Custom pocket doors with antique hardware and two built in cabinets, also by Backwoods, finish the room. Backwoods operates a workshop in Old Forge and a factory in Syracuse.
